Tom Donahue is the only guys voice I can vaguely remember but I don't remember him sounding like that. I'll take your word for it. I'm from the East Bay ( so I'm an A's fan not Giants )which all the Penninsula snobs ( including Jerry ) look down their noses at. Whatever I always said. We had better weather : )

Donahue had a variation on the SF accent, so he doesn't sound exactly like Garcia...
I wish I had a link for at least that GD promo Tom Donahue did, and then you could hear a primo sample of der patois.

Meanwhile, I just caught a neat little example of Jerry G. talking SF style, right after Hard To Handle ends on March 8, 1970:

eventually I should be able to digitize that TOm Donahue promo, then have it where you can hear it for comparison's sake.

The San Francisco accent takes many forms, many strains, and is all but extinct - if it ever existed at all.

Smaaaashed!
